Amherst, N.Y. - Stampede, the pro A/V distributor, said Sharp's new line of Aquos Board interactive display systems will be part of its Spring 2012 Big Book of AV Tour (BBOAV).
According to Stampede president Kevin Kelly, "This year's tour will place added emphasis on the education channel, and the Aquos Board interactive display systems represent the next great advance in in-class learning and collaboration.
"With a simple user interface and the ability to save, share and print documents, including the user-input markup, educators and students can discuss information in a whole new way."
Stampede is creating a series of customized training sessions that cover every capability of the new Aquos Board displays, Kelly said.
The new line of displays is the first commercial-grade line of interactive displays to ever carry Sharp's Aquos name, the distributor said. The line consists of 60-, 70- and 80-inch model, available now.
The Aquos Board offers seamless integration with presentation and video-conferencing technologies, such as including WebEx, GoToMeeting and Skype, Stampede said. Additionally, the system will be fully compatible with a full array of Microsoft products (Microsoft Office Suite, Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7).
In addition to the PN-L802B stand-alone display, which comes with a three-year on-site parts and labor limited warranty, customers also have the option of purchasing a bundled solution.
The bundle -- PN-L802B-PKG --includes the Aquos Board 80-inch class, full-array, LED backlit, interactive touchpanel display; the PN-TPC2W7 Compact Whiteboard PC; and a rolling cart floor stand. The whiteboard PC connects easily to the rear of the display; utilizes an Intel Pentium dual-core 2.5 GHz processor; comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Windows 7, Sharp Pen Software and touchscreen drivers; and is sold with an HDMI connecting cable for easy system setup.
The 80-inch class LED touchpanel, with FullHD 1,920 by 1,080 resolution, is equipped with Sharp's UV2A photo alignment and full-array LED backlight technologies to create an energy-efficient screen that is easy to read in most environments, regardless of ambient light, the distributor said.
